Donald Glover Wins Directing Emmy for 'Atlanta'

United Nations

It was, not surprisingly, a night for politics, with everyone from host Stephen Colbert to Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Alec Baldwin getting in zingers about Donald Trump - all to be upstaged by Sean Spicer himself, in a controversial appearance that set social media afire.

Although Baldwin is not a regular member of Saturday Night Live, he has appeared on the show a total of 15 times in the previous year and a half, making him "a supporting actor" in the series.

Riz won at the 69th Emmy Awards here on Sunday in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category for his role in "The Night Of".

"I'm going to be available to do some of those shows this year", Baldwin said in the Emmy press room. The performance has earned rave reviews and garnered Baldwin newfound notoriety as the go-to Trump impersonator; his Emmys win seems to confirm that all of that hard work paid off.

The host had joked about Hollywood not giving Trump an Emmy for his show The Apprentice.

Lena Waithe made history by becoming the first African-American woman to win for comedy writing for "Master of None", an award she shared with co-writer and star Aziz Ansari.Presenter Cicely Tyson struggled to read the teleprompter and blamed it on her nerves.




"I suppose I should say, at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy", Baldwin said at the top of his speech, getting uge applause from the audience. "They are very frustrated, they are suffering a great deal", he said.

"I have done jobs that you shouldn't respect or admire me for, too.so we have that in common", Baldwin said. The show also won best comedy series.

Producer Lorne Michaels nailed the short speech requirement, accepting a statue for Best Comedy Series for Saturday Night Live.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for "Veep" sixth time in a row.

John Lithgow, who received the best supporting drama actor for his role as British leader Winston Churchill in "The Crown", took a more diplomatic approach to political commentary.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver picked up the Best Variety Talk Series, with the star thanking Oprah's seat filler and asking the band to play him off.
